To all Cowlitz tribal members: 4/11/2024


To all Cowlitz tribal members:

All official notices from the Cowlitz Indian Tribe will be from the administration with our official logo and on letterhead.

We do understand that others are mailing items and some of you assume it’s from the tribe.

Thank you,

Cowlitz Indian Tribe General Council Chairwoman
Patty Kinswa-Gaiser


The legacy of an ancient people in southwest Washington is rich with descendants who manage a growing portfolio of health, education, scientific research, housing, transportation, development, elder care, conservation and legal issues. The Cowlitz Tribe is a growing force in community building in what are now Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and parts of Pierce, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties, a vast territory occupied by numerous Cowlitz villages prior to non-Cowlitz exploration and seizure. Today, an elected Tribal Council is composed of professionals adept at managing multiple programs and projects.
